Liettliga þar — svá ljósin vátta
liettleika í svaranna reikan —
því treystiz hann framt freista
flærðum settr og talar með prettum:
‘Eigi munu þið Ádám deyja
andlitshvít, þóað eplið bítið,
heldur munuð með heiðr og valdi
hosk og rík við guðdóm líkjaz.’

 

Easily therethus the lights affirm the levity in the wavering of her replies —, he dared this, filled with deceit, to tempt impertinently and speaks with tricks: ‘You and Adam, bright of face, will not die, though you eat the apple, rather, wise and powerful, you will be like the Godhead with honour and might.’
